The only method to learn sequences and series

  1. Dec 10, 2013 #1
    I remember when I took Calculus B in college. I had never learned any math by reverse engineering before, but when I got to sequences and series, the only way for me to learn how to do it was to reverse engineer it. I had to look up the answer in the back of the textbook, and then work backwards from the answer.

    Do you people agree with me that the only way to learn sequences and series is to reverse engineer the problem?

    I don't know what you mean by "reverse engineering" a theory but I do know that there are many different ways to learn sequences and series. It may well be the best way for you to learn but hardly the only way.
